Too bad it doesn't fly:

Looks like Shamu, and the YF-23 had baby. It's got a profile that only a mother can love.

Anyways it's in a movie starring this girl,

Noticed the pics during my monthly browse through the Navy photo galleries.

It looks a damned sight better than the A-12 at least...

The U.S. Navy's first stealth airplane was the Douglas AD (or A-1) Skyraider.
When I was in the Air Defense Command in the early 1960's, AD's could penetrate the ADIZ without detection easier that any other aircraft type.
They would come in low and relatively slow, so obviously they weren't a threat.
Then the feces would impact the ventilating devise.

Awesome mockup but it looks to me that it looks like Northrop's conceptual plane Switchblade where it has wings that sweep forward and become streamlined wings themselves stowed away for high speed. But then there that Su-34 nose.

Who's the designer, it almost looks flight worthy. Again, awesome mockup.

I'd be impressed if Hollywood went to great length to take an F-14 and changed the outside and somehow still make it fly, considering how unsmart they are with aviation even in general.

Don't know much about it. Did find this on IMDB:
http://imdb.com/title/tt0382992/fullcredits

It has Sam Shepard in it (Chuck Yeager from the Right Stuff).

Anyways see you all on the 17th, taking an English Vacation, gee it's only 61 degrees there, how will I ever survive without my 100 degree Florida weather.

Though the actual forecast won't be much different from Florida, RAIN!

Edit: Found some info on Switchblade, looks interesting, and very similar, but I wonder if the wings are that way for on board carrier storage.

Well it isn't an F-14 but H-wood did do exactly that with a Gazelle Helicoptor.

Of course I understand that "Blue Thunder" flew like a dog because it was so heavy.
